Muhyiddin confirms GPS’ registration approved

Home Minister Muhyiddin Yassin.

KUALA LUMPUR: Home Minister Muhyiddin Yassin confirmed today that the registration of Gabungan Parti Sarawak (GPS) has been approved and an official letter would be sent in the next few days.

“The letter will be issued by the RoS (Registrar of Societies) in a day or two,” Muhyiddin said during his ministerial wrap up for Budget 2019 in the Dewan Rakyat today.

He was replying to Alexander Nanta Linggi (PBB-Kapit) who wanted to know the status of the application by GPS.

In August, Sarawak Chief Minister Abang Johari Tun Openg had said that the RoS had approved the registration of the party and it was waiting for an official letter to be issued.

GPS is made up of Parti Pesaka Bumiputera Bersatu (PBB), Parti Rakyat Sarawak (PRS), Sarawak United People’s Party (SUPP) and Parti Demokratik Progresif (PDP).

They were part of BN but made an announcement to withdraw after the 14th general election.
